    Maybe CP3 ate some of that E. coli romaine and he is sick.

    Maybe Harden will teach CP3 to play with heart.

    These so-called pundits like Skip Bayless needs to be held accountable for stupid stuff he has said.

    This was a "rest rehab" game. Outside of Harden and Clint, everyone looked off target.

    They will all go take a bunch of jumpers post game and will obliterate the Wolves in game 2.

    I'm more worried that certain people are allowed to start threads...

    He had an awful game. He will bounce back.

    He’s not choker. Just because he’s lost in the playoffs, that doesn’t make him a choker. He’s always played great in the playoffs, just lost to better teams or had bad luck with injuries,

    With that being said, he was obviously not himself tonight. But remember, he openly admitted to throwing up after signing with Houston.

    I think he’ll be fine, he just has to shake off the nerves.

    The Referees honestly were destroying the rhythm of the game, by not calling fouls. The Rockets really need Ryan Anderson out there to shoot 3 pointers to space the Floor. Ryan is the best shooter against Minnesota. It would add depth and P.J. Tucker, Gerald Green, Trevor Ariza got overused and tired, the stretch PF combination was really bad.

    He seemed a little frustrated at times when he wasnt able to get past teague off the dribble. Basically started playing on edge and began forcing shiii all night. Highly uncharacteristic and disappointing but hopefully its just an anamoly.

    The "Realist" with the hot take! AWESOME!

    So glad we've got guys with "Realist" and "Truth" in their monikers to clue us delusional fans in on what's ACTUALLY happening with the team. :rolleyes:

    He definitely was off but there were times when they would force the ball out of Harden's hand by doubling him and CP3 came up big in those moments. It keeps a team honest on how they want to guard Harden. Definitely not the norm for CP3 so I'm not worried.

    He will bounce back and make us forget about Game 1. He always comes up big in playoffs.

    Tonight could be just nerves/butterflies knowing you actually have a chance this time around, unlike most of his career. Im not worried.
